Coconut Records

I don't really listen to too much new music, my tastes generally lay in decades past. One artist however has totally got a stranglehold on my ear drums.......Coconut Records!! Its Jason Schwartzman's solo project and its absolutely divine . Its dreamy, poppy at times, totally catchy and just evokes this distinctly California sound. He has two records out now. Nighttiming and Davy. Both are fantastic but I recommend checking out his debut record, Nighttiming, first.





The cover of Nighttiming. Arty isn't it?

Very bizzare how things work...if you asked me who Jason Schwartzman was I would have shrugged my shoulders. Then I get Dons post to check out ya blog. I then see a photo and think "that looks a hell of a lot like that dude in a dvd I watched last night"...a quirky film called The Darjeeling Limited set on a train by the same name, in India. It stars Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and as it turns out, Jason Schwartzman. So he is not only an actor but a muso too. The album cover from Nighttiming looks like it is a set shot taken from that movie. I'll have to check his music out. Useless information I know, but I just thought it was coincidental...congrats on your new blog!
